3.81/5 rDev -7.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Appearance: Arrives with the hazy copper liquid capped by an inch of foam; a few strands of lacing linger
Smell: Caramel and rye underpin the pine
Taste: Caramel is dominant, up front, with the piney hops and spicy rye tones developing through the middle; sticky through the finish with the malts challenging the hops through the finish
Mouthfeel: Full bodied with moderate carbonation
Overall: Overly sticky, for my palate, though the hoppy bitterness combines nicely with the spicy rye flavors
Serving type: on-tap

Thanks to nate321 for hitting my joy-buzzer with this extra from a brewery that's new to me. 22 oz. bottle split with my wife.
Pour is a hazed & confused dark orange with carbonation appropriate to an adult beverage called 'beer'. Nose is heavy on the spicy rye with a side salad of fruits, loaded up with oranges & tangerines.
Reuben's Imperial Rye IPA is like a hook echo of the Road Warrior I've been slugging down the past few days. Just like RW this has a big, thick mouthfeel that's fairly rare on the rye side of things. Dragon-size bite of spicy rye, but then it veers off into a southern orchard, bringing the fruity nose of oranges, tangerines, & finishing up with a touch of pine cone bitterness. Alcohol is noticeable. Enjoying drinking this one.
Very good rye that peaks with the river delta thick mouthfeel. Very good.
